Thanks RoundAbout!

Yeah, to turn a freebase into any salt form, you just add the acid you want it to be the salt of.
For example, for the acetate salt, add acetic acid (vinegar). For the citrate salt, add citric acid (vitamin C). For the HCl salt, add hydrochloric acid.

Vitamin C is ascorbic acid, citric acid is different. Sorry for nit-picking  :P

Yes, but it seems the trick people are suggesting is adding a small volume of concentrated acid into alcohol that contains the freebase... ultimately obtaining the crystalline alkaloid salt. I think some of those acids (e.g. citric) would crystallize if complete evaporation was used rather than precipitating the DMT salt from a low solubility solvent. (HCl and acetic acids should evaporate though I think.) I wonder how much of the alkaloid is retained in the alcohol though... I haven't read much about the solubility of DMT salts in various solvents other than for the fumarate (for FASA), let alone 5-MeO-DMT.
